NOTE: This is copy-pasted from my Patreon account but I feel it's needed that I say it here too: 

Hey everyone. I just wanted to make an apology to all of you for how slowly and inefficiently I've been posting updates.  For the past few months I've been neglecting to release stuff and keeping a lot of people waiting too long on their rewards.  Since April it's been a lot of promising myself I'd do better, procrastinating through most of the month, then panicking, then doing everything during the last week. This is not acceptable and I have to get myself in gear if I expect to keep doing this thing.


I saw my Patreon numbers go way down and I'm sure it's because of my inactivity. I don't blame any of you.  The fault is entirely my own, and I accept responsibility.  Not trying to beg you to come back with this post, I'm not asking for hugs so I feel better, I just wanted to tell everyone sorry for fucking up.


When I started here I didn't really have much in terms of a plan, I just went with an idea to see if it worked out.  I didn't plan for Patreon to be a replacement for commissions or a regular job, but more of a "tip jar" to help fund random fatty drawings.  It was something I intended to be for fun, but if I can't keep on top of it it becomes a source of stress.  The only way to avoid that is to stop being a lazy shit and just DO IT. SHIA LEBOUF.


I'm trying to come up with a new plan of going about this, probably removing some of the higher tiers and maybe trying some cheaper reward tiers.  Like maybe a $10-$15 rough sketch tier? One real flaw I've noticed is that I really need to try and engage more in conversation with fans and clients.  (Sorry, I'm a bit shy)  So if anyone has any suggestions or ideas I'll gladly listen, don't be afraid to ask.


Thanks for sticking by me, guys.
